    Ranks of SkyThunder

    Will be updated when more dragons join.
    <br>
    <p>
    {|female leader|} Hurricane (mateless)
    <br>
    {|female leader|} Bermuda (mateless)
    <br>
    {|male leader|} none. Must be Hurricane's mate
    <br>
    {|male leader|} none. Must be Bermuda's mate
    <br>
    {|healer|} none
    <br>
    {|warrior(s)|} Ender & Obsidian (these two, Bermuda and Hurricane have the same rper)
    <br>
    {|hunter(s)|} none. Unlimited
    <br>
    {|dragonairs|} none. Baby male dragons
    <br>
    {|dragonets|} none. Baby female dragons
    <br>
    (Hatchlings are equal rank. This is shown with ranks highest to lowest)
    <br>
    <p>
    Leaders do the obvious: lead. They take cobtrol of the huge arguments with their mate and fellow leaders. They have to advertise the most.
    <br>
    <p>
    Healers are healers. That is all there is to it. They heal dragons wih their powers. The types of dragons that are good at these feilds are included on the map. You can go and choose from diiferent types.
    <br>
    <p>
    Warriors fight and gaurd our home. They may hunt if they have to. There are certain types of dragons suited for this, but anything will suffice.
    <br>
    <p>
    Hunters hunt for SkyThunder. They bring back their kill and share with their thunder. After all who wants it have been given the meat, the feast may start.
    <br>
    <p>
    Hatchlings pay no role except to grow up to become a mighty dragon of the SkyThunder.
    <br>
    <p>
    Thank you for your time and effort, and I hope you all have a good time rping in this thunder!
    <br>
    <p>
    ~Hurricane: female leader
    <br>
    ~Bermuda: female leader
    <br>
    ~Obsidian: warrior
    <br>
    ~Ender: warrior

    Great Book!

    or those of us who have attended one of Jon Cave's fly casting classes this book provides an excellent refresher course of the principles and techniques of fly casting. For those who have never had the opportunity to attend one of Jon's classes, here is your chance to learn the from the master at a very reasonable price. The principles Jon presents will help a rookie as well as the experienced fly fisher cast at their full potential. The illustrations are so detailed and outstanding that I could actually picture Jon showing the class the importance of the each facet of the cast. Hey, here is your chance to move to the next level!
